What is a WaterSense Irrigation Smart Controller?

Do you want more control over your irrigation and sprinkler system? Have you thought about getting a controller or timer to work with your system to save water, reduce costs and to automate your system? With automation, that means less work for you!

Welcome to Hunter Industries product lineup of Smart Controllers.

What is a smart controller?

Put in simple terms, a smart irrigation controller or timer includes a sensor to adjust to the optimal sprinkler run time based on your local weather conditions. It has built-in water saving features to provide a beautiful, healthy landscape while reducing water use which save water and reduces costs for the homeowner. An experienced irrigation company can install one for you.

Hunter Industries explains the technology behind smart controllers with Solar Synch: “The Solar Sync ET sensor is an advanced weather sensor that calculates evapotranspiration (ET) and adjusts Hunter controllers daily based on local weather conditions. Solar Sync measures solar radiation and temperature, and uses ET to determine the correct seasonal adjustment percentage value to send to the controller. The controller then uses its programmed run time and Solar Sync’s seasonal adjustment value to modify the irrigation run time for that day. In addition, the Solar Sync ET sensor includes the features of Hunter’s popular Rain-Clik™ and Freeze-Clik® sensors providing quick response in shutting down your irrigation system during raining and/or freezing conditions to save water.

What is WaterSense?

The United States Environmental Protection Agency “EPA” explains that “WaterSense, a voluntary partnership program sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), is both a label for water-efficient products and a resource for helping you save water. The WaterSense label makes it simple to find water-efficient products, new homes, and programs that meet EPA’s criteria for efficiency and performance. WaterSense-labeled products and services are certified to use at least 20 percent less water, save energy, and perform as well as or better than regular models.

WaterSense partners with manufacturers, retailers and distributors, homebuilders, irrigation professionals, and utilities to bring WaterSense to your community. Our partnerships encourage innovation in manufacturing and support sustainable jobs for American workers”.

“All Hunter AC powered controllers can be converted to a smart controller by simply adding a Hunter Solar Sync to your irrigation system. Hunter controllers paired with Solar Sync have been independently proven to save water and are approved by the EPA as a WaterSense Smart Irrigation Controller.

The EPA has independently tested all Hunter AC controllers and certified them as WaterSense Smart Watering Controllers. Hunter is the first irrigation manufacturer to receive approval on such a wide array of smart water saving controllers under the EPA’s strict testing guidelines,” states Hunter Industries.
